Catastrophic childhood experiences

Image: “Moses Floating on the Water. Caption: “The little boy is floating on the water. He is in a little basket made of reeds, or rushes. It is woven together very tightly, and covered with pitch to keep out the water. The little baby’s mother made the basket and put him in it. Then she laid it carefully among the bushes by the edge of the river.” Illustration from the 1897 Bible Pictures and What They Teach Us: Containing 400 Illustrations from the Old and New Testaments: With brief descriptions by Charles Foster,” by Illustrators of “Bible Pictures and What They Teach Us” by Charles Foster, 1897, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Foster_Bible_Pictures_0059-1_Moses_Floating_on_the_Water.jpg … public domain

Image: “The Finland-Russia War. From the refugee camp in Heinola. In order to employ the children, a small provisional school education has been arranged,” by unknown photographer, 13 December 1939, in English Wikimedia … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Finnish-war-children-siting-in-a-room-142447836975.jpg … public domain … DESCRIPTION: “War children are those born to a native parent and a parent belonging to a foreign military force (usually an occupying force, but also military personnel stationed at military bases on foreign soil). Having a child by a member of a belligerent force, throughout history and across cultures, is often considered a grave betrayal of social values … The discrimination suffered by the native parent and child in the postwar period [the post-World-War-II period in Europe] did not take into account widespread rapes by occupying forces, or the relationships women had to form in order to survive the war years.” … COMMENT: Note the frightened … almost ‘shell-shocked’ looks on the faces of the children.
